Firstly the lipstick packaging is AMAZING. The shade of red is not cool but not warm either, it's perfectly in between. When swatched it looks like it will apply with a slight sheen but it doesn't, it goes on totally matte. It doesn't glide on smoothly due to the texture, so I would recommend applying lip balm beforehand and then wiping it off just before you apply if you want to keep the matte finish. I personally like the matte finish as with a colour like red it's already full on so I don't want to draw even more attention by making it glossy.
Here are some swatches, I used Rimmel's 'Red Diva' lip pencil to outline my lips to ensure precise application, it's actually a perfect match. I then applied the lipstick direct from the tube. I haven't worn this all day, and it will probably take a lot of guts as it's out of my comfort zone, but due to the texture & finish it feel like it will last FOREVER.
The nail polish 'Scorn' is a true black. It needs two coats and you are good to go. Initially it applies glossy and then dries matte, personally I don't like matte nail polish so this is a no no for me.

My favourite from the collection has to be the lipstick as it's just a classic, it's one to check out if you are into your matte finish red lipsticks.
